This weed was growing in a shady wet area and was covered up with butterflies. I want to know what it is. I was thinking maybe milkweed, but I did some more research and came up with Sweetscented Joe Pye Weed and Trumpetweed. I have never heard of them.

Whatever it is, I would like to propagate it for butterflies and honey bees.

    Although this does look like Joe-Pye weeds (Eutrochium), it also looks similar to snake root (Eutrochium). Its leaves can help you distinguish between the two genera. If you are still uncertain, please resubmit with photos of the leaves & the whole plant. Click on or copy & paste the included link below for how to propagate Joe-Pye weeds. Best wishes!
